Well – where do I start with this amazing family orientated business! You walk in the door to receive possibly the nicest greeting on earth from Emma, Lindsie, Khloe, Kiara and Gabby … They have such a close knit team that makes you feel like your at your mum and dad’s – you know… that really comfortable feeling! Yeah there awesome!

My dentist is Sudeep but It takes effort to pronounce so I just call him James 😂😂😂 It’s a joke now – without fail he knows I will forever call him James!

Once I’m in the ‘evil chair’ I make laugh every time because I’m the biggest clown! We sing along to tunes and I get in trouble because I need to stay still – I CAN’T STAY STILL!

The other day I went somewhere and I couldn’t recognize Kiara because she wasn’t in my family dental uniform – drop dead gorgeous I may add!

My Family Dental has pretty amazing services… I have to get four crowns – yes expensive af! But they are so amazing at sorting out a payment system that works for me so it’s affordable. Emma is great with numbers – lucky cause I sure as hell am not! haha.

They run deals on their Facebook page so watch out for their sneaky deals!

You can also book appointments on the My Family Dental Ingham page, I’m currently on the page having a look around and it’s so functional, they have some great ratings… yes other than the one from me 😜

Good oral hygiene and regular visits to the dentist will help you maintain healthy teeth and gums. I love my teeth that’s why I take such good care of them!

Here are some tips to help you look after your teeth.

  1. Brush at least twice a day. The best time to brush teeth is after meals. Choose a toothbrush with a small head for better access to back teeth. Soft bristles are kinder on your gums.

  2. Use fluoridated toothpaste. Fluoride helps to harden tooth enamel and reduces your risk of decay.

  3. Brush thoroughly. Tooth brushing should take between two and three minutes.

  4. Floss your teeth daily. Use a slow and gentle sawing motion.

  5. Limit acidic drinks like soft drinks, cordials and fruit juices. Food acids soften tooth material and dissolve the minerals in tooth enamel, causing holes (cavities or caries). In severe cases, teeth may be ‘eaten’ right down to the gum.

  6. Limit sugary foods. Bacteria in dental plaque change sugars into acids.

  7. Protect your teeth from injury. Wear a mouthguard or full-face helmet when playing sports.

  8. Try to save a knocked out tooth. If possible, hold the tooth back in place while you seek immediate dental advice. If this is not possible, wrap the tooth in plastic or place it in milk and seek dental advice immediately.

  9. Avoid using your teeth for anything other than chewing food. If you use them to crack nuts, remove bottle tops or rip open packaging, you risk chipping or even breaking your teeth.

  10. See your dentist for regular check-ups. You should also visit your dentist if you have a dental problem such as a toothache or bleeding gums.
